Avatar f tn Yes, Benzodiazepines are infact used to treat epilepsy and other seizure disorders- however it is NOT an anti-/seizure convulsant based medication... It is actually considered a mild tranquilizer(sedative) that works by slowing down the central nervous system. Also, Benzodiazepine's are not the first choice for the treatment for seizure disorders. Studies have also shown that prolonged use of Benzodiazepine's in the long run for such disorders becomes less effective..

1516809 tn?1345086364 Today, when I visited my father, I observed that my father experienced some type of seizure as they were taking him for an MRI. I think this new neurologist is missing the boat, and I need to bring in another. The primary is hoping that the MRI will find something which in turn can change his admittance status. In the meantime, the primary reiterated again today that it was the hospital that changed the admittance status of my father.
Avatar n tn However, be that as it may, he offered me no diagnosis, and told me that what I was experiencing did not fit into any known neurological classification. In the intervening years I have continued to experience these debilitating episodes and have noticed that they only occur during the spring and summer when I take an antihistamine for my allergies.
Avatar f tn Sandee is correct that Neurontin (Gabapentin) can cause eye movement disorders as most drugs in this classification are capable of producing. However that is very different from the difference in pupil size or unequal dilation. Amblyopia does not refer to the size of the pupils. Amblyopia is more commonly know as a lazy eye.

A revised edition will be available sometime in 2013, but the ICSD is the golden standard and this should be the only choice!

190559 tn?1280615967 The treatment forces your body into a grand mal seizure and can affect memory, cognitive function, and learning in the short term. Our daughter has displayed symptoms of both mild hyperthyroid and extreme hypothyroid states over the past several months, sometimes even fluctuating over a few hours or days.

2065348 tn?1331078807 Like most people the world wide web quickly produced a name for how i was feeling, and the classification instantly reassured me. Unfortunately it affected my work and I was forced to leave London and return to my home country of South Africa to live with my parents at the ripe old age of 25. Since returning, my symptoms have subsided a little, through talking to friends and family and I think seeing a therapist is definitely on the cards.
Avatar f tn He is in constant pain with headaches, lower backaches and can't even remember conversations. He suffers with eating disorders and has lost a lot of weight. No one seems to be able to get the pain under control. He still lives independently but has been approved for a caregiver. I am not sure if he should be in a home care environment or how to help him with his pain. Any ideas. He is currently in the hospital and being checked out by a neurologist at barrow's so we hope for thebest.
